I’m looking at the lovely Canadian snowflake draft. I’m assuming it is two colors but need help determining the warp color sequence. How do I read it to identify my warp thread colors?
Thanks so much for your insights!
I would love to put turned twill and these various tie ups into a tablecloth. Is this possible to do in double Weave? What’s the minimum number of shafts and treadles that it would take?
Thanks for your hard work and dedication!!

Wow! I loved the baby blankets! I see from the comments above that it will be available as a kit? Any dates on when that might arrive? Also, I’m interested in doing a bedspread/blanket and loved the first baby blanket. Could this same material and pattern be easily adapted to the larger size? I’m assuming that it would have to be doubleweave.
Your ideas are truly inspiring! Thanks so much to Jane, Miles and the rest of the team at JST. You guys rock!!!
Would you be able to share the draft of the tea towels made by Kathy that Jane showed around the 43:00 minute mark? They were striped and multi-colored.

Hi! Would it be possible to get the draft pattern that Kathy used for her multi color dish towels?
I’ve heard several comments from Jane about the importance of sampling and washing your sample. I’m learning that I need to focus more on PPI. How do I maintain the tension of my warp on the loom if I am cutting off the sample to wash? What do I need to do to keep from losing the tension in the warp once I cut it? How do I tie/secure it while washing the sample? Is there an episode that addresses this?
Thanks so much for all the great info Jane!! While I’ve been a sporadic table loom weaver for years, now that the kids are grown I’m able to devote more time and effort to weaving on a floor loom.
Ready to get beyond the basics,

Finally! The reason for my loopy selves gets is a too small shed!! Is there a general rule or percentage of an open shed that represents the ‘sweet spot’? What are the boundaries? Two-thirds of the distance between the apron and extended beater?
